How can we force a General Election? A vote of no confidence?
The economy and the country's administration is going down the pan fast. In an election I think the Government will get absolutely destroyed. But after that?
I know what you mean about Royal Mail. I have always found them useful and helpful so I have a lot of sympathy for them. I have never felt comfortable with the idea they should face competition. Studying Economics years ago, I always recalled we decided there were certain national assets that should never be privatised. Examples include those that rely on a national structure and are strategic: electricity, gas, water, rail and the postal service.
I think New Labour are ruined and are running scared. Through dependence on financing on the never-never and removing our reserves (because they had removed boom and bust, right) they left us ill equipped to deal with a recession. Now all they have is borrow more (what's the latest figures? £1.75 trillion?) and sell off the family silver.
Who will pay for this in the long run? Us. You can rest assured the politicians, the bureaucrats and, indeed, the bankers will not lose out. The workers at Royal Mail are just the latest, but not the last.
Incidentally, I recall somewhere the nasty spectre of the EU in this somewhere. Did they not rule that Royal Mail had to lose its profitable business post to the competition? Perhaps another area for review.
The postal workers certainly have my support. Get Labour out now and make the Conservatives fear the population.
What was it like to give birth in the eighties? Doctor's attitudes, Nurse attitudes towards birth?
The closest I can say with the birth of my first daughter is that my husband got to cut the umbilical cord. Women were aloud to react to their pain whichever way they desired. If you wanted an epidural it could be done. I decided I wanted an IM instead which worked out perfectly because I slept off my entire labor and had to wake up to push. I was scared, it didn't help with the lady in labor screaming her head off in pain. I never lamaze classes, perhaps I should've so I wouldn't have been so freaked out. The doctor that delivered my first-born was a cold-hearted jerk though. I wish I could've had a doctor that had a better bedside manner like all the other doctors I had since. I went on to have four more children. I was kept at the hospital for three days. I had a vaginal delivery and I know that a C-Section patient was kept for five days. Because I was trained to become a RN. Nurses routinely held breast-feeding classes for new moms and trained new moms on how to clean the umbilical cord, etc.
1980: The ACNM developed guidelines for establishing "alternative" birthing services and dropped a negative homebirth statement (originally approved in 1971) in favor of a statement that endorsed practice in all settings.
By 1980, the primary concern about medical and other health care had shifted from access and quality to an overriding concern about costs.
1981-1982: AIDS came to the attention of the medical world.
1982: The Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) began. One-third of its members were CNMs, and the rest were other types of midwives.
Insurance (liability) coverage declined rapidly for CNMs from 1982 to 1985, with some companies totally withdrawing from coverage or making it expensive.
1983: The Federal Trade Commission intervened in a CNM-doctor case and negotiated an agreement that prohibited the insurance company from any form of discrimination against doctors who collaborate with CNMs.
1983: The National Association of Childbearing Centers was established.
1985: The AMA set out to create legislation and regulation for all non-physician health care workers that would not allow these workers to practice independently.
1987: The INF treaty, eliminating nuclear missiles, was adopted.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) opposed nurse-midwifery and issued formal statements to that effect in 1980, 1990 and 1993. AAFP stated the belief that all nurse-midwives should work non-independently and that all payments should go through the physician.
During the 1980s, there was a widening and deepening sense of crisis regarding the country's ability to provide adequate and effective maternity and other reproductive health care for all of its women. Racial and ethnic minority women, rural women, and women living in poverty and social distress were particularly likely to have limited access to effective care.
Securing adequate and affordable professional liability insurance was the most demanding challenge faced by nurse-midwives during the 1980s.
During the late 1980s, Congress enacted legislation to make Medicaid available to more women and also required states to make Medicaid-eligible women's access to obstetric care equal to that of other women. Also, most states began to pay more for maternity care."

when a minority of voters and the Supreme Court shoved bush down the country's throat I bet you were overjoyed. Obama won, democracy has been restored. Time for you in the immortal words of the band The Eagles to " Get over it "
